Mark Staten’s eighth grade students recently wrote List Poems. Their poems follow:
When you have a tradition
It’s your family’s mission
To keep the tradition going
Every name starts with a J
I think that’s all
At least for now,
And now it’s nightfall
I must say goodbye to you all.
By Jaden Goodin
Pets.. but not quite
The list goes on and on with animals. There are a lot of them that are mammals. Here’s a list of animals I like. That I want as a pet. They are:
(Maybe with a wig)
A finger monkey
That might be plenty
The list can go on, and I might be wrong. I could totally pull these off for pets. I might have to ask the vets.

Places To Go
There so many more out there, but that’s a few of them.
By Angel Wallace
Places I love to visit
The Candy Bar Dilemma
I was in the store and she said I could only have one
I knew that decision would not be fun
I mean there’s Kitkat’s, Snickers, 3 Musketeers,
Butterfingers, Doves, Hershey’s, Milkyways, Reese’s,
Oh Henry bars, Paydays, and Twix
Who could make this difficult choice?
Here are some sustenances that make me very happy
And tater tots too
And of course, pizza rolls
And fruit snacks, also
These are the foods that make me feel a certain type of way
So Many Choices
When we are kids,
We have many choices.
What do we do and where do we do it?
We can be teachers
Doctors and farmers
Astronauts or dancers
A soldier, fireman, or veterinarian
Biologists, engineers, police officers
We can do our jobs anywhere.
In Paris, Madrid, or Greece
Barcelona or Ireland
Italy, Australia, and India
The Bahamas or maybe the moon
They all sound great, so how will we choose?

There was a man we all knew so well,
You could even say he’s very swell,
He is such a ball,
So here are a few words to describe him in all,
So as you can see,
Mr. Staten is such a sweetie!
